WHY ARE WE ADVOCATING CHANGE?

Ninety-one percent of us live in areas of the world where the air quality is below World Health Organization guidelines.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?  

From our first breath to our last, every individual on the planet should be able to breathe air that doesn’t impede their respiratory health and quality of life. We need a comprehensive understanding of the impact of air pollution on respiratory health and quality of life.
